Prototype Expert System for Climate Classification.
Harris, Clay
Many students find climate classification laborious and time-consuming, and through their lack of repetition fail to grasp the details of classification. This paper describes an expert system for climate classification that is being developed at Middle Tennessee State University. Topics include: (1) an introduction to the nature of classification, Koppen's classification system, and climographs; (2) the advantages and disadvantages of computer-based classification; (3) the rationale for using the C programming language and a DOS-based program; (4) the program design, the modules of software development, and future interface and graphics enhancements; (5) the use of the expert system in both classroom and independent instruction and the project evaluation. Three figures depict: flowcharts for Koppen classification system; a summary of climate subcategories and climate codes within the Koppen system; and a sample climograph. (AEF)
